like they're running out of this tired rant even about obama care already. your thoughts. >> that's right. i think there's a streak of the evil other them, the mysterious other who is now in the person of president obama. and he wants to impose big government on the poor, free people of texas and everywhere else. i've known john cornyn for years, i've covered him for years. i don't think of him at heart as that kind of guy. he was a corporate republican. he was part of the george w. bush machine of compassionate conservatism years ago. but now he's playing to that crowd. and the fact it was a google hangout is significant. one of the things that's changed here is that you marry that long tradition of american fear of government, of resentment of the other, of conservative versus liberalism. you marry that us versus them with modern technology in the fact you can speak discreetly to your own crew and stoke up your own crew, wave the flag with them, and you have the tone of the republican party today. they're largely speaking to themselves. >> yeah. and on occasion they get caught,

. the details how it went down are straight ahead. >>> and if you thought you were enrolled in obama care, check again. you may not be. the obama administration dropping a bombshell. thousands of americans who recently signed up for insurance may be left without coverage right before the new year and the federal government hasn't told them. we'll tell you the details. >>> and, guys, one of my favorite stories, ever. uh-oh spa getios. the company tweeting out this picture as a tribute to pearl harbor. what was meant as an honor was inappropriate. you have to read the spaghettios headline. >>> "fox & friends" begins right now. >>> and "fox & friends," welcome. the popular show. >> we think it is. >> "fox & friends" christmas party, we'll share photos from that yesterday. >> we shut down the bowling lane yesterday. most of our crew did pretty well, and a segment on how it is the holiday christmas party. i. a lot of folks will wind up going to work hungover. tips how to beat the hangover. >> tips, fake it until you make it. >> that's what i'm doing right now. >> don't announce that. >>> and while yo

of governance. >> the challenges with the obama care role out continue, california is making headway. >> since october 1st, about 80,000 people have enrolled in private insurance through the state's exchange. meanwhile, california republicans have been reduced to creating prank websites to prey upon their own constituents desperately seeks out information about health insurance. >> we reached out to all of the members of the assembly and state signal. two california republicans agreed to come on the show and logistics on in the way. joining me now is karen bass. she knows her way around the state's politics. i'm amazed this existed. this is one of those rare times when a headline captured how truly ridiculous a story was. can you believe they did this? >> you know what, this is exactly as you described it, an incredibly new low. but i think that it is an example of desperation. in california, you know that the state is 100% behind covered california in making sure that the affordable care act is implemented. for them to lower themselves to this level i'm shocked, and i'm shocked at the republi
for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the
health care reform law. the obama team spent weeks playing defense over the disastrous debut of the healthcare.gov website. next hour he kicks off a new campaign to highlight the benefits of the affordable care act. the administration plans daily events through december 23rd but convincing young people to sign up for obama care may be a tough sell. according to a brand-new gallup poll, americans aged 18 to 29 are the least familiar with the health care law. this is the main group, by the way, an the administration needs toe attract to make the whole system work. call it crisis management on a global scale. vice president biden is on a mission to ease tensions between china and japan. he and the new u.s. ambassador to japan, caroline kennedy sat down with japan's deputy prime minister taro aso today. hot on the agenda, how to handle the defense zone chooen has over the sea. he was deeply concerned over the actions. >> the u.s. has an interest in lowering the tensions in this region as i believe all the countries in northeast asia share that same interest with us. >> this under
honoring his word on obama care? >> first of all, i think it's important to point out he actually has tried to go beyond what he promised now. and in many places, he will be able to do that. >> you don't take credit for that? >> no. i waited for him to say that he felt badly about it. but the truth is the law that he signed did grandfather in the policies that were in existence when he signed the law. >> so we're hearing from a different tone of bill clinton there, senator. we've got the newfound confidence that we're watching from the president, his white house, this new strike team. there are some of leaders right there, these democratic lawmakers. do you think there's enough time for the president to rewrite the narrative on obama care? >> absolutely. absolutely, thomas. the main point that has to be made is that the current system before the aca is absolutely dysfunctional. 48 million people, no health insurance. we spent twice as much per capita on health care as the people of any other nation. if we spent what other nations spent on health care, we'd save $900 billion a year. 45,000 p
the benefits of obama care. the president heads off this fresh offensive with a speech planned for 2:30 p.m. eastern surrounded by americans who have been helped by the health care law. just announced this morning, this thursday, msnbc "hardball" host chris matthews will have a sitdown with president obama joined by students from american universities. the so-called young invincibles that the white house needs to reach. each and every day between now and december the 23rd, the administration and congressional democrats will hold an event touting a different positive aspect of the health care law, just like those advent calendars so many of us are using this time of year. seems familiar, right? the ones where every day of the month you pop open another door and reveal something special inside? three years after he signed the affordable care act into law, two months after the botched rollout of the health care website, the administration hopes a three-week campaign will remind all americans why they're doing this in the first place. >> how hard of a slog is it going to be for the white hous

on what the alternative would look like, john boehner equivocated. >> when you look at obama care, you see a government-centered health care delivery system. that's not what the american people want. the american people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance and own doctor and they want to pick their own hospital. that's what a patient-centered health care system looks like. >> will that be up for a vote in 2014? >> will that be up for a vote in 2014? >> we'll see. >> the fact is there is not a bill being concocted. boehner and tom cole tried a save, arguing that republicans have put alternatives on the table. >> we have been putting ideas on the table and the president hasn't put very many ideas on the table. tom price is a physician has one. republican study has one. there is over 200 pieces of republican-respon republican-sponsored legislation out there. >> nothing passed because there is no unity about what the plan should look like. >> not like they are winning the war. not trying to leave that impression. they haven't been losing it to republicans. former presiden

people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south africa and along the road i was surprised to see the number of whites would seem to identify themselves with what is happening in the country today amongst blacks. i was absolutely surprised. and i expe
